Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are rich chocolate, coffee, roast malt and hops. Nice and creamy. Wonderful to taste a genuinely great imp stout that is this good without being barrel aged. Awesome!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1st March 2010
Opaque black beer. Light palate for a RIS, a little dry, quite soft and airy. Not roasty or bitter but a ton of dark malt. Mild lactose. Subtle hint of dark fruits. Mild chocolate and coffee in the finish. A nice RIS but for me doesn’t reach that luxuriant feel and flavour of the best. A bit nit picky because this is a good beer!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 750ml bottle. Poured a medium black-brown color with a small tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, coffee/espresso, touch of hop note. Flavor was that same roasted malt, coffee goodness. Enjoyable, but lacking something for me.

Bottle sampled in line waiting for DLD to fire up. Pretty tasty overall. I honestly thought I got a touch of bitterness from the burnt malt, baking chocolate and cold coffee notes. Everything after that was sweetness.
